Throwback art time!
Among many other things, I can thank the Lord of the Rings movies for my ability to draw people. When I was a kid I mostly used to doodle scenes I’d made up in my head, but when FotR came out and I loved the characters so much that for the first time I started drawing from photos. This taught me oodles about how the face is proportioned, how to draw poses, horses, costumes, etc. It also marked my first major excursion into obsessing over a fandom ;)
In honor of a certain Hobbity movie coming out this Friday, I am declaring this Lord of the Rings tribute week! I’ll be posting new fan art every day until the movie, plus some throwback art and other things to show you what a massive fangirl I was back in the day.
(“was” …Haha right ;)
Oh bother those trippers!
Susan Pevensie, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
I decided I needed a favorite female character, and then I decided it was Captain Angua, hence the doodle. Can you guess why she’s awesome?
(Yes I know she’s supposed to be blond but I picture her as a brunette and the wolf as blond. I know it makes no sense, forgive me!)
Guys, guys GUYS! I’m smiling so hard right now, this movie was the best!!!
Music= AHHHHMAZING made me want to drop everything and become a Broadway diva and just belt out Frozen songs all day (even though I’m not a singer so this isn’t likely)
World building/ design= A+, love all the Norwegian influence. Plus that ice dress made my sparkly inner princess really happy…
Sidekick snowman/ reindeer= ADORABLE. Didn’t think I was going to like Olaf but I was so wrong, he’s very hard not to love.
But most of all, Disney has been trying for awhile to make a princess movie that sends a non-sexist message about what love is AND THEY FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT. I can’t comment too much on this without spoiling the plot, but just… just go see it, okay?
Unlike Malcolm, Jack has been very patient while waiting to finally show up in the comic.
Can we all take a moment to appreciate how the Korra creators took the time to match the globe in the Harmonic Convergence episode to the map in the opening title sequence?
never forget that for voldemort’s name to rearrange to “je suis voldemort” in the french translations, they had to make his middle name ‘Elvis’
I CANT HANDLE THIS
This cracked me up so I googled it and just found out that in the Danish version Tom Riddle’s name is ’Romeo G. Detlev Jr.’ Everything is amazing.
